LET­TERS POL­ICY

The Progress-Index Weekend - - OPINION -

The Progress-In­dex and Herald-Post en­cour­age our read­ers to sub­mit let­ters of sup­port for can­di­dates in the Novem­ber elec­tions. How­ever, we will not ac­cept let­ters writ­ten by the can­di­dates. We re­serve our right and dis­cre­tion as to which let­ters we pub­lish. We re­serve the right to edit for length, clar­ity, brevity, spell­ing and gram­mar. We will not ac­cept let­ters that con­tain abu­sive or vul­gar lan­guage, un­founded claims against or per­sonal at­tacks on can­di­dates, their fam­i­lies and other let­ter writ­ers. We will not ac­cept anony­mous let­ters or ma­te­rial not gen­er­ated by the let­ter writer, such as cam­paign fliers, speech ex­cerpts and so­cial­me­dia post­ings. Let­ters should be no longer than 400 words. Please en­sure your name, ad­dress and a day­time phone num­ber are in­cluded. Phone num­bers are nec­es­sary to ver­ify writer au­then­tic­ity. Phone num­bers will not be pub­lished. Let­ters must be typed and emailed (no hand­writ­ten let­ters will be ac­cepted). The dead­line to sub­mit let­ters for ei­ther pub­li­ca­tion is 11:59 p.m. Eastern time Sun­day, Oct. 28. For pub­li­ca­tion in The Progress-In­dex, send let­ters to let­ter­toed­i­tor@progress-in­dex.com and use the word Elec­tion in the sub­ject line. For pub­li­ca­tion in the Herald-Post, send let­ters to adri­en­newal­lace22@gmail.com . Note that de­pend­ing on space avail­able and the vol­ume of emails re­ceived, we make no guar­an­tee that all let­ters will be pub­lished that are re­ceived within the cam­paign process.
